- unique art piece, created by Priya Sundaravalli -

The Plumeria Essence necklace is ceramic artist Priya's vision into the soul of a pure snow white plumeria, finely outlined with gold for an elegant and original effect.

These unique creations are inspired both by the wilderness in and around Auroville and the poetic beauty of Nature. Priya's creative process relies upon serendipity, spontaneity, and the aspiration to express life’s abundance as well as the joy of living.

Delicate ceramic jewelry handcrafted by Priya Sundaravalli at her studio, Pottery Sipapu, in Auroville.

Each of these singular ceramic objects of adornment have undergone multiple firings including a high temperature glaze firing in a wood-fired kiln (1250 deg. C) and a low temperature gold luster firing.

Some works incorporate freshwater pearls or genuine Swarovski crystals. Silver or gold plated non-toxic hypoallergenic components, imported from Europe, have been used in the finishing of the jewellery.

Priya Sundaravalli

While earning her PhD in engineering at the University of Michigan Priya made her first contact with clay during a ceramic class in the art department.

She arrived in Auroville 16 years ago and spent the first 10 years as a science teacher in Auroville schools. However she always continued pottery in her free time. After several successful exhibitions of her work the hobby turned into a full time profession. Priya states that in her work she seeks the unity of opposites – asymmetry and balance, chaos and harmony, imperfection and attention to detail. Her creative process relies on spontaneity, moment-to-moment guidance and serendipity. All her art work is organically shaped and her main inspiration is the nature around her.

Her main influences for a large scale installation put up at Mumbai airport were the shapes of marine life. For the biennale in Jaipur Priya crafted the sculpture “Blossoming – being all of them She stands there” out of eight unused Matrimandir disks that she covered with over 2000 delicate one-of-a-kind flowers.
